The festive season has come and gone and we now look forward to enjoying golf for 2018.
The final golf day for 2017 was a par round which saw Judy Baker put in a good round, scoring +4 to win the day.
Joan Hill was runner-up with +1.
Nearest-the-pins on the third was Robyn Downs (Gallery Café), on the ninth was Liz Mulcahy (Café Alofa), and on the 14th was Phyl Fiddes (One4One Café).
A hole-in-one to Joyce Tavener on the sixth hole was the closing highlight for 2017.
Joyce holds the honour of being the first person to record a hole-in-one at the Hill Top Golf and Country Club back in 1965.
It was on Joyce’s wish list to ace another hole before she retired, if ever, but thought it would be a fitting birthday present as she now joins the octogenarian club.
Congratulations Joyce on getting your wish.
Joyce was presented with a hole-in-one badge the following week.
